Frequently Asked Questions:
How Does IPL Work?
The process works by breaking up the pigmentation and speeding cellular turnover. Most patients experience a darkening of the hyperpigmentation immediately following the procedure, which flakes off over the next couple of weeks and this leaves you with more even-toned skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
Most people feel only a slight “snap” like a rubber band followed by warmth of your skin. You will also feel cooling on your skin as the handpiece glides over the treatment area to help in providing a comfortable session.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the treatment, it is common to feel a mild sunburn-like sensation around the treatment site, which typically lasts 2-24 hours. Redness and/or swelling may accompany this and usually resolves in 2-3 days. We will discuss any other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you during the consultation.
